Vegetable Manchurian

This recipe is a total inspiration from chef in you. I recently purchased the Pancake Puffs Cast Iron Set and I wanted to try the vegetable manchurian. I try to use very little oil in my cooking and this pan is a dream come true. You can make koftas with little to no oil.

Ingredients for the vegi balls:
- 1 purple cabbage
- 1 carrot
- 1/2 cup peas
- 1 potato boiled and mashed
- 2 tsp corn starch
- 1 tsp all purpose flour
- 1 green chili minced
- 1 green onion chopped finely
- 1 tsp chili paste like Sambal Oelek (optional)
- salt to taste
1. Mix all the ingredients together. You should be able to make small balls from them. If not add a little bit flour to this.
2. Now in you pancake puff pan spray some cooking oil and place these vegi balls. You need cook them at a low flame. Other wise the outside gets done but the inside will still be raw. Turn it around every few minutes so as to cook both side. Once fully done remove them and keep them aside.

- 1 bell pepper chopped finely
- 1 small onion diced finely
- 1 green chili minced
- few spring onions chopped
- 1 inch ginger, peeled and grated
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp chili sauce
- 1 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp corn flour
- 2 tsp oil
- sugar and salt to taste

1. In a pan add oil and heat it up. Add the onion, green onion, ginger and the bell pepper. Fry them in high heat. You need these to be slightly crunchy.
2. Meanwhile in 2 cups of water mix the flour, salt, sugar, soy sauce and chili sauce well. Add it to the cooking vegetables.
3. Boil them for a few minutes and they will form to be a thick gravy.

Putting them together:
Just before serving heat up your gravy. Add the vegetable balls to the gravy and serve them at once. If you add the balls earlier they will become mushy and loose their shape. Serve it with either hot rice or noodles.
